Trump only has 38 percent of the republican vote so far. (That is less than 50 percent). It would be a rigged system if he got the nomination without the 1237 delegate count. That is why we need a contested convention, at which point who we voted in as delegates get to decide the matter on our behalf. Trump may still win, and my straight republican vote will go to him, but he may not win, and we may actually get a conservative in the White House, which we desperately need. Bring on that contested convention.

very shortsighted take. As of right now over 61 percent of Republicans have not chosen Trump, the only way to make that count and balance the benefit of having too many other options in the beginning of the campaign (advantage Trump) is the representative system of delegates. If he gets 1237, it doesn’t matter, the balance is in his favor and he wins fair. If not, he has not won fair, and that’s why we have a convention.

He may not get the 1237. He has been as shortsighted on his ground game as he was with Trump Steaks. Time will tell. He have my vote if gets the nom, but he is profoundly able to undo himself when it counts.

These folks voted their grudge against a complicated statement about New York values they didn’t understand but took offense nonetheless. Voting emotions is what liberals do. New York has spoken, so what?

If Hannity does not understand the delegate process in our representative republic, and can’t articulate it for his listening audience, and instead serves to fan the flames of their frustration with their own ignorance, how does he claim to be conservative? He is pandering to the emotional needs of a select few of his listeners with the tenacity of any bleeding heart liberal.
Trump is playing Hannity and many others. Trump knew the rules but wanted to win by losing.He was simply not organized enough to win.
I am puzzled by a couple of things.
Trump supports tend to be demanding change, primarily in response to the damage Barack Obama has done. Yet didn't Obama get elected on "Hope and Change". Seems voters don't learn and are content to make the same mistake twice..
Also, riling up people with fiery speeches and blaming others for their failures were hallmarks of the Obama administration, isn't that exactly what Trump is doing?
Make no mistake, Trump is at worst no worst than Hillary and maybe just what we need. The problem is we don't know which of these extremes his core principles will drive him to. If Trump is the nominee, I will not let emotion or unrealistic expectation of perfection keep me for voting for him because we know Hillary's leftist policies will complete the destruction of American exceptionalism that Obama has begun.
He's mimicking rump. When there's violence this summer, rump and Sean will be to blame
So Trump isn’t really Christian or at least one in need of forgiveness from God, isn’t really pro-life since by omission he has basically admitted he has paid for abortions, doesn’t really say things the way they are because if you give him a different audience you get a different answer, isn’t really a successful business man, he just hasn’t outspent the growing value of his inheritance, isn’t really a Republican, until just before he showed interest in getting his name on White House stationary (probably can’t wait to gold plate more of the oval office, maybe replace the Eagle with a yuge letter T), isn’t really blond anymore because he is 70+ and pays for artificial youth, isn’t a sun worshiper, he just can’t say no to a spray booth, isn’t a conservative, because you know Government should take care of its citizens, by putting them in nice neighborhoods and educating their children, and liberal judges related to him would make perfectly good nominees, and he can’t really beat Hillary because he has sent every woman in the nation into her receptive arms, why is he still an option? And his supporters, is there anyway to revoke their license to vote that doesn’t violate the constitution? Maybe they will come a day late and then complain they weren’t treated fairly by election officials, one can only hope.
I'm anti-Trump but you don't get to decide who is Christian.
I am pro Cruz because I want Hillary to win.. Cruz cannot get the independent/moderate vote and without it Hillary wins.. No matter what your polls say.. General election polls are and have always been garbage, look at history.
The only person that can win an election is A. dems with their illegal voters/dead voters/and people voting multiple times... OR B. a conservative that can muster the independent/moderate voter with the true conservatives backing them also. We do not have it this time, so the SCOTUS picks will go to the Dems and our country is gone. That is reality.

SNL will do the same to Trump they did to Palin, repeat the exact same words, sprayed orange with rediculously blond hair for a 70+ old man, and then Hillary wins.

Supporting Trump in this is like being one of the cowards egging on a schoolyard match. Not the one throwing any punches or receiving them, not the one protecting the innocent kid being bullied, just glad not the be the target, and yelling from the side, “Fight!” I hope anyone unwilling to lay blame at the Orange himself for this garbage is just as disconnected from reality when they are trying to remember what day they should vote.
The closest you've ever been to a bully is on the internet. What happened tonight is a group of bullies tried to disrupt a campaign event and to prevent violence it was shutdown. Now go cower in your safe zone and leave the grownups alone.

Same elitist liberal behavior. I am smart enough to tell you what you should do, and because I am important I am exempt from following the example. Hey, Boycott Trump, I just thought of that!

At the very least, it is now again verified that Israel is the primal lease holder to the holy land. Every one else is a visitor.

The point is Einstein saw grand and intricate order in the construction of the universe instead of the byproducts of chaos, and instinctively knew that intelligence and not chance was required to generate our reality. What generates frustration for me is how often, those who would design to maintain the right to ridicule any God believers, assume we are limited in our capacity to process probabilities and therefore believe in a “Bearded Guy in the Sky” who wields lightening bolts of retribution. While some may keep for themselves a vision of God derived from Renaissance art, certainly not all Christians imagine such a deity. And not all of us believe that God would never allow a symbolic day and night representation of the creation regardless of the actual time it consumed to be inserted into His “Flawless” book of Scripture, but would only allow His Bible to literally detail his creation labor as spanning only six actual days, and a subsequent 6,000 years of modern human history from Adam to this day. That may be someone’s understanding of the scriptures but by no means is this a definitive interpretation. And for the souls determined to limit God to their literal take on the written word, it would be very disconcerting to encounter evidence to the contrary and therefore likely that denial would be a knee jerk reaction. The Earth can be old and the Bible can be true all at the same time.

I think making such a declaration and defacing what is basically the symbol for all of us, should automatically cancel any and all access to tax payer funded entitlements, and remove any tax credits or deductions. The extra money could be used to relocate them to any home country of their choice without the opportunity for repatriation. If you don’t like it here, we will help you find a different home.
READRIGHTHERE - If I'm not mistaken, the United States of America does indeed have a law on the books that will pay for the airfare of any US Citizen to relocate to any destination (of their choice) within the world. The caveat - they lose their US citizenship and are never, ever allowed to step on US territory again; akin to a true one way ticket. Perhaps those that stomp on this country that God has so blessed should take up the offer and remove themselves from American society. No love lost should they take the offer.

Catholic Adoptioin Services had to shut down operations in Massachusetts because they refused to be forced to provide services to a legally married gay couple. As far as the LGBT community is concerned they don’t want to be left alone to do as they please, they want to legally force their acceptance and what they see as their rightful place in the public concept of mainstream normalcy, and they will destroy anyone who begs to differ. Businesses are first, then schools and their text books which will have to provide a disproportionately exaggerated presence of LGBT examples, and Churches (The only true enemy to their complete societal acceptance) are certainly next. At the very least, they will require churches to discontinue providing marriage services for anyone if they will not provide them for gay couples, their “outdated” belief system be damned. The Mormon church has a way out regarding their Temples. (Folks will have to get legally wed by a Government authority and then enter the Temple for a sealing ceremony. This is already done in other countries.) But Glen, even if his prediction is a little overzealous, is not far from the mark. The LGBT community will stop at nothing, it is only a matter of time, and churches, with their lands, holdings, and revenues are certainly a potentially juicy future target.
Are we ready for this? I say, get into the WORD and be ready
Let's see what happens when Catholics shut down their hospitals because they refuse to comply with some effed up court decision bound to come on the heels of this. There are quite a few Catholic hospitals in this country. It would be a healthcare nightmare.

All behavior is a matter of choice. It may not feel like it, especially when one is entrenched in their addiction, but all behavior is choice. We make choices for all kinds of reasons, far too many to simply categorize and apply generalities. Although people might be like snowflakes, there are moral absolutes. Each individual has to seek out their own motivation for getting with the program. We extend to all their right to opinions, and consenting behaviors, and we are therefore obligated tolerate what happens behind closed doors as long as nobody is having their personal rights trampled, but that doesn’t make every choice acceptable, or normal, or even understandable.

Depression is the fourth stage of grief when confronted with truth you are desperately trying to ignore. Of course he is depressed, the lies he peddles are more fun for him to believe than the truth coming from Fox News. The last step of the grief cycle is acceptance, doubt he gets there.
This really gets to the crux of the matter. Are we or are we not born gay, straight, or anything in between? (Sounds more like a spectrum disorder more heavily skewed by environmental factors than genetics, because after all, a preference for wearing dresses could hardly be attributed to genetics, and besides it hasn’t been proven and is simply a matter of science by consent (Much like global warming. But that is another discussion). Now being black is certainly genetics making it a crime of reason to treat someone with prejudice (Positively or Negatively) due to their skin shade (If you still do then you are an idiot with self esteem deficiencies in need of psychological review or at least a decent trip to the woodshed.) But more to the point, equating the LGBT struggle for acceptance for their behaviors and that of African Americans for acceptance of their humanity, is inane and worthy of derision and ridicule, and another trip to the woodshed.

What is vile is the belief that so many now possess that they are allowed to use their first amendment rights to say anything including threats (F the police counts as a threat because F is a verb) to police officers. Resisting arrest means a physical altercation is not only likely but necessary, and I do not believe any cop has the responsibility to figure out just what you are physically willing to do to them before they are allowed to respond in kind. When a cop says stop you had better dang well do it. If the cop is in the wrong file the complaint and pursue means to correct it after the fact. Handcuffs don’t hurt as bad as being an idiot.

A green light means “Go when safe.” The flashing lights on the squad car say, “it’s not safe.” For all the cop haters, can you possibly imagine this society without them.
LOL no it doesn't. That would be a YIELD sign if you have to yield to see if it's safe. In Minnesota there is actually question on the drivers exam worded "If you approach an intersection to take a left and the left turn arrow is green, do you have to check for pedestrians or other cars before proceeding?"
The correct answer is NO.
And turning right on a green you only have to watch for pedestrians that may have a walk signal.

The same principle that drives addiction drives the repetition of any behavior. If we find something we have done to be rewarding we will likely do it again (thank you Dr. Skinner.) We have no problem with healthy addictions like exercise, hard work, or aggressive study habits, etc. We are appalled, however, when people engage in self destructive habits that are obviously counter productive such as drug use and abuse, sexual deviation, or hoarding.
Sex has a built in physiological reward mechanism, making it highly addictive, once the behavior is learned, no one wants to quit cold turkey. Once certain patterns of arousal are ingrained they do not easily go away. No one likes to feel responsible for their poor behaviors, it is infinitely easier to establish victimhood so as to relieve guilt, “I can’t help it.” “The devil made me do it.” or “I was born this way.” Besides, if we can establish that behavior choices are strictly genetic then we can group all deviant behavior into a subset of all that is considered “normal”, and claim that any prejudice against it is similar to that experienced by any other cultural minority for the color of their skin. And look! That is exactly what the Gay agenda is doing. Whether it is marriage equality or demographic representation in media, literature, or school texts, the argument is that the LGBT community needs to gain recognition as perfectly normal. Acceptance, if society will not freely grant it, must be legislated!
